Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Sustainability Director Bill Hall and his colleague Todd Yaney want to ensure sustainability, ethics, and human rights compliance throughout the company’s Tier 2 through 5 suppliers. They aim to achieve broader, sub-tier supplier alignment with FCA’s environmental, social, and governance objectives. Hall and Yaney realize they will have to successfully navigate through the complexity of both FCA and its supply chain in order to create positive change without authority.

  • Understand the nuanced situation facing Hall and Yaney as they seek to create positive change without authority.
